The Plaza, Worli, Mumbai

A series of iconic structures, their sculptural forms conceived as an abstraction of a tree canopy as part of an intimate and unique luxurious retail experience

Upon arrival, this light pattern establishes an atmosphere of mystery - altering sightlines and introducing a sense of layered transparency. Creating a classically European influenced space with an avant-garde and playful twist that responds to the local context, the canopies provide continuous shelter from the sun and monsoon rains. The canopies also act as rain catchers, storing water below ground to be treated and re-used for the green wall irrigation. Project executed by Morphis partner during previous employment.
